Bangladesh textile garments industry has been suffering a lot during this pandemic situation. It has largely affected order decrease due to COVID-19 outbreak. Last year the industry survived with some good initiatives and government support. As the country is largely affected by the second wave of COVID now it’s really a very hard time for this industry. Recently the BGMEA election has been completed and a new BGMEA committee with the leadership of Mr. Faruque Hassan has taken charge for 2021-2023. Textile Focus has been talking with BGMEA members’ company owners regarding the expectation from the new board. Mamunur Rashid, Managing Director, Mamun Knitwear Ltd. expressed wish to the new BGMEA board.
I welcome this newly elected board. Industry now facing many challenges due to the pandemic. At this moment if the factory closes many orders shift to other markets. So as a competitive market we need to always open factories with maintaining safety. Besides BGMEA will work on development of new markets & showing our strength to global buyers.
